Rare appearance by dual Apple execs
Apple's senior VP for Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, will appear at Re/code's first annual Code Conference in late May, as will senior VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi, according to an announcement. The executives will be headliners on the second night of the conference, which is already sold out. The event is a spiritual successor to the All Things D series of conferences, which were overseen by staff now at Re/code.
It's extremely rare for more than one Apple executive to appear at such gatherings. All Things D drew Apple's special interest though, playing host to CEOs Steve Jobs and Tim Cook in different years. One Re/code writer -- Walt Mossberg -- has long been a favorite of Apple, one of the few journalists the company will send review units to. Mossberg is known to be generally favorable towards the company's products.
